• Must-ing and should-ing. Who says?

Stop. Feel. Watch. • Be­lief-ing. Ques­tion ev­ery be­lief. Then

test it again. • Right-ing. Only na­ture has the right to

be per­fect. • La­bel-ing. Al­low your­self to see things

fresh. • Im­press-ing. Who are you try­ing to

fool? Set your­self free. • Please-ing. Do it from real love or

don’t do it all. Man­ners are passé. • Com­pare-ing. If you look, there will al­ways be some­one bet­ter. Stop look­ing. • Blame-ing. Own your situation, even if

it doesn’t look fair. • Gos­sip-ing. Give oth­ers the re­spect

you de­serve. • Crit­i­cise-ing. Stop. We’re all the same.

Feel your heart. • Jib­ber-jab­ber-ing. Stop bitch­ing inside

your head. • Ex­cuse-ing. Don’t give your power

away to feed shame. • Com­plain-ing. Count your bless­ings;

there are oth­ers worse off. When we un­block our en­ergy, kid­ney en­ergy can flow to the heart cen­tre, and our life force flows up to higher lev­els of aware­ness and be­ing. Then we em­ploy higher lev­els of mind, see things more clearly, de­pres­sion lifts, we be­come more com­pas­sion­ate, un­der­stand­ing and pa­tient, love be­comes in­creas­ingly un­con­di­tional, and per­sonal hori­zons are ex­panded. Sex also be­comes more cos­mic. There. Now you’re sold on the idea. Tut tut, cheeky. n

Im­mu­nity is some­thing we need to look af­ter. Too many of us get sick and then get sick again and again… and we go straight for the an­tibi­otics. Preven­tion is bet­ter than cure. Look af­ter your­self and strengthen the body. Eat with the sea­sons and eat the

right foods.
